Desserts by Decade: The Dirty 30s with Keegan Rodgers and Patti Smith

Tue, 12/17/2019 - 8:40am

When: September 25, 2019 at Westgate Branch: West Side Room

Join us for the latest installment in a new series on the history of desserts by decade.  This month, we will discuss the 1930s!

The decade began with people driving custom convertible Packards and sneaking sips of "giggle juice" (hopefully not at the same time!) and ended with Hoovervilles and Apple Annies drinking "dog soup". People might not have had a lot of dough but they still could make, well, dough! Get the lowdown on some keen recipes from the 1930s with Lakehouse owner/baker Keegan Rodgers and hear about national and local history from historian/writer Patti Smith. Learn how to make a treat from the era while enjoying stories about happenings at the local and national scene. It's the bee's knees!

This event was in partnership with The Lakehouse Bakery
